    Not enough choices...I think it depends on the crime.

    We aren't known for rioting. We are better at getting our way just by being white.

    It is always immature to take the life of another person. I consider myself to be on the more lenient side when it comes to youthful offenders, but youth is not an excuse for murdering someone in cold blood. This kid is just as much a danger to the community as any adult, and any teen who takes another's life for no other reason than to watch them die is far beyond the point of rehabilitation through the juvenile delinquency process. He needs to be put away.

    The other two it's harder to say based on the limited facts we have now; I will assume the prosecutors made an appropriate decision.

    Is Texas Immature for Capital Punishment? I have thoughts on that.

Teens know what is right most of the time, they just aren't any good at doing it. For that you need maturity, which they lack and therefore we call them teens or kids.
    Please, teens know it's wrong to murder people. Thinking otherwise is just ridiculous. It definitely about right or wrong when a person life is at stake and it is extremely wrong what this trio did. There is no reason to think these kids did not have the "brain maturity" to realize what they did was wrong. They should most definitely be tried as adults.

    They know a lot of things, as a matter of fact they know everything if you talk to them, they just don't do what they should do very damned often. They're kids remember, as in Not Adults Yet, obviously.

    Getting all snarky on an internet message board is the white version of rioting these days.

    I say this as a white person, haha.

    Sometimes they don't realize the consequences of their actions.
